Brief Description of Research
The rapid socioeconomic development achieved in East Asian large basins, especially of Changjiang River and Yellow River, has strongly demanded water resources and energy development, and concentration of population and land-use changes associated with the changing industrial structure, have been affecting the ecosystem, water, and material cycles in the watershed areas. In addition, various problems hindering sustainable development, such as floods caused by watershed reconstruction and extreme weather, shortage of drinking and irrigation water by blocked rivers, have been seriously exposed. Thus, it is the most significant issue to promote a better understanding of the interaction involving the watershed ecology, and develop an environment management system which enables the proper management of water and materials.

Until now, I have been working on the development of an interaction model of vegetation, soil, and atmosphere on regional heterogeneous surface, construction of a digital map database using GIS to determine sustainability, and development and assessment of local land productivity models, in the research project on “Land Use for Global Environmental Conservation” supported by Ministry of Environment. Especially, as a part of “Modeling of Ecosystem Function and Sustainable Environmental Management Projects in River Basins in East Asia Regions,” I have joined the “Integrated Environmental Monitoring (IEM) Sub-project” of “Asia-Pacific Environmental Innovation Strategy Project (APEIS)” sponsored by Ministry of Environment since 2001, and been devoted to build a MODIS data network covering the whole Asia-Pacific regions, and an ecological observation network on the ground for representative ecosystem types, with the kind support among the project groups and the cooperation of foreign institutes. Moreover, I have improved the NASA’s algorithms, such as MODIS land surface temperature of high-order products, land cover dynamics, terrestrial evapotranspiration efficiency for monitoring surface moisture conditions, leaf-area index, and land productivity etc., and validated them with the ground-based observation data. I also have conducted an impact assessment of global warming, increasing use of fertilizer, and expanding irrigated areas, by simulating the water and material cycles in representative areas with terrestrial ecological models. Since 2012, I am leading a policy contribution-oriented research project “Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Strategies for Permafrost Regions in Mongolia", supported by the Environment Research and Technology Development Fund (ERTDF: 2E-1203), Ministry of the Environment, Government of Japan.Since 2014, I participated a project on "Development of Innovative Adaptation System and MRV Method for JCM in Mongolia" funded by Ministry of the Environment, Government of Japan, in which I am attempt to assess the amount of CO2 absorbed by the grasslands in Mongolia.
